The Beauty Buffs - Color Block


Good morning everyone!  How are you all on this fine Wednesday.   I apologize that I was unable to post with the Twinsies yesterday for Twinsie Tuesday.  I hate when I have to miss a post, but when life gets crazy, there really aren't any other options.

I am here today though posting with The Beauty Buffs!  This week we are talking all about color blocking!  I love color block manicures!  I've tried to do them numerous times the past few months, and they were great until I went and applied my top coat.  I had a goopy bottle so it dragged the paint and ruined my crisp lines.  I never photographed them because I was just too embarrassed.  They literally came off two seconds after I completed them.

Finally after purchasing a new bottle of top coat, I was able to create an awesome color block manicure.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!  Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Faby - Plastic Jewels and Neon Lights
  • Faby - Sakiko's Time
I really love the colors I used for this color block manicure.  A few weeks ago, I received some polishes from Faby.  Faby is a company out of Italy which is new to the United States.  I've used Black is Black numerous times and love it, so I was excited to start using the colored polishes they sent me!

These two did not disappoint.  Plastic Jewels and Neon Lights is such a fun, bright turquoise cream polish, and Sakiko's Time is a gorgeous purple, grey cream.  The two polishes compliment each other perfectly.  Now, you know me, my primary concern is if the polishes are good for nail art.  My verdict for these Faby's: they're awesome!!  I used my nail art brush to fill in the empty spaces for the color block.  Both were very opaque and applied evenly.  I didn't have a problem with them drying too fast, so when I pulled my tape off, I didn't have any little strings left behind! 



I really love Sakiko's Time.  It's such a unique shade of purple that my collection was really lacking.  I can't wait to use it as a base for some Winter manicures.  Can you believe I'm already talking about Winter manicures??

What do you think?  Liking this color block?  Have you ever used a Faby polish?
